In Winter 2015/16 visitors will be able to see progress in action, and for safety reasons, may find access temporarily restricted as the Killerton team embark on their landscape works. The National Trust is working with Blackdown Environmental, a contractor local to Killerton. Blackdown will deliver much of the forestry work, which started on Monday 5 October with restoration of wood pasture. Work will take place between 8am and 4pm Monday to Friday through winter and early spring.
